A Message from our Head of School

Bronco Families,

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year, Walther’s 68th year! I’ll skip the part where we talk about the “unprecedented nature” of the 20-21 school year, and I’ll refrain from references to social distancing and masks. Let’s just say we made it, by the grace of God, and we are so excited to have everyone return to campus this fall! 

The grace of God is what everything is really all about. We can make plans and preparations, and work every day to do our best, but it is God who helps us through. Any success we have is God’s work. I’ve chosen Ephesians 2:8-9 as this year’s Scripture Verse to remind us of this: “8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast.” God saw us through the COVID school year and got us safely to the other side. God sees us through all of our years. Most importantly, we Christians can live a life of freedom and thanksgiving, knowing that through Christ we are saved by the grace of God. That’s how big God’s love is for His children.

So…we know that God’s grace is sufficient, and that His love will always be there for us no matter what we do. We don’t need to “earn” anything through works. That is comforting. At the same time, that doesn’t let us off the hook! What is our response to this grace, this unearned salvation and limitless love? We strive to live a life that imitates Christ, loving our neighbors and sharing the Word. At Walther, we do that by running the best school we can and serving God by serving our students. We have a great year in store for them! There are so many opportunities waiting for our students inside and outside the classroom. I invite every student to take full advantage of all the Walther has to offer. Play a sport! Play 2 or 3 sports! Try something new. Join a club or an extracurricular activity. Put in the work to learn as much as you can in your classes. Try out for the play! Run for Student Council! Parents can get involved as well. After a year of virtual events and capacity limits, we invite everyone to come back to campus. Join the Booster Club! Volunteer! Attend a concert! Come to games, meets, and matches! You are always welcome at Walther.

By the grace of God, this is going to be a great year at Walther. We look forward to seeing you soon!

In His name,

Tim Bouman, Head of School / Principal
